Up early…

..because I had to drive Matt to work (we still only have one drivable car, but that’s not important). I have to close later today, but it’s just as well since Matt has class all day long anyway. Don’t think I mentioned, but Vanderbilt is sending him to electrical school to get some kind of license…journeyman’s, maybe? He does that two nights a week and will be done in two years, I think.

But anyway, so I’m awake. Our friends, Chris and Nita, gave us a beautiful pine entertainment center, and we moved it yesterday. They just wanted to get rid of it to do something new with their living room – it takes up a LOT of space and kind of dominated the area. But I think it looks great here. It’s three separate parts – the center, where the TV is supposed to go. Then it has two bookcases on each side, both set back about a foot from the front of the center piece. Anyway, so we put the two bookcases into the dining room and have the center in the living room. And I LOVE it. It looks so great with the rest of the furniture, etc.

So this is the middle.  You can’t tell how deep it is in this picture, but it’s at least three feet I’d say.

And, here in the dining room, are the two other pieces.  I had to take down some of the pictures to make room, which is why there are a few on the table.

Our gaming and liquor cabinets.  Game days will be even more fun now!

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

One thought on “Up early…”

  1. oh, man, Erin, they all look so beautiful! I’m really struck! with jealousy, mostly, but also genuine gladness that your living space is so lovely. (my living space sucks.) the wood, the straight lines, the space, the warmth. it looks so, so nice from over here.
